This CCL2511 6” Glass Onion Wall Lantern Caged is pictured here in Antique Brass with clear glass. It accommodates a medium base bulb and is lit from the top. The Antique Brass is not lacquered so will darken and weather to a beautiful natural patina!

IMPORTANT NOTE: All Onion Lanterns come apart with thumb screws for ease in cleaning and replacement of light bulb.

The origins of the Onion lanterns date back to the whaling ships and fishing vessels of years gone by. The name “onion lantern” came about because of the shape of the glass.

The onion glass is a hand-blown globe, and casts a lot of light all around! Very popular in seaside areas…especially on Cape Cod! Folks in different parts of the country are now using them both inside and outside on many home styles because of the amount of light they show.

The onion lights are commonly used outdoors near one’s front door, side doors, decks, porch areas, as well as inside in bedrooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc.

Mounting Height: 12” from center of the J-Box to top of the lantern.

Dear Craig,

Just a short note to thank you and S. Wilder for another year of terrific service! The quality and beauty of the lamps you sent us is, as always, first rate.

After may years of service from S. Wilder, it was a surprise when the previous owner informed us that he was turning over the reins to another. My concerns however were immediately assuaged when you took the time to travel here and introduce yourself as the new owner of the company. The sheer volume of renovations that we have undertaken this year has certainly put a great deal of demands on you, given the short time we allowed you to produce such a volume of fixtures. We certainly appreciate your willingness to work around our tight schedules.

I look forward to many years of continued service from S. Wilder, and all the best with the continued growth of your company.
Sincerely,

- Anthony Fife, Interior Designer
